Setting goals in your life and in your career can be very powerful and very effective. Writing them down will increase your ability to meet them.
In 1979 the MBA programme graduating class at Harvard University were asked,
‘Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?’
Ten years later this class was tracked to see how much they were earning. They were split into three groups.
Group A which represented 84% of the class had set no goals at all
Group B and 13% of the group, had set themselves goals but not written them down, ten years later were earning TWICE as much as group A.
Group C which equalled just 3% of the group had set written goals and were earning TEN TIMES as much as both groups A & B put together!
In this article we share some of the golden rules for setting goals for yourself, that have been gathered from successful goal setters from around the globe.
1. Be Careful What You Wish For!
We need to be very specific about what we actually want in all areas of our life. For example it might be great to earn heap loads of money and have a great career but are we sacrificing other areas in our life. This might include not seeing your children grow up because you are working long hours or you don’t reserve enough time for your partner or hobby.
It pays to make a list of all the important areas that are important in your life and be very specific about what you want and need.
2. Make Sure You Will Know When You’ve Arrived
How will you know when you’ve arrived at your goal? How will you judge that you have reached your desired outcome? What will it look like, what will you hear and what will it feel like? If we don’t do this it’s difficult to say we’ve done it. We need this to gain that sense of achievement and satisfaction that reaching the goal gives us.
3. Give Yourself A Stretch
We often gain the highest amount of satisfaction when we achieve a goal that requires some effort on our part. Many dreams are like this and it will depend on each individual whether it is stretching enough.
4. Check That It Meets Your Internal Values
Sometimes in our rush to meet our goal we put ourselves in situations that go against our values as a person. For example we might work for someone who has different values and we are expected to comply with those. If you have ever found yourself in this place, you will know that after a while it becomes so uncomfortable that you have to leave. So before you say yes do what you can to see whether your values are aligned.

“Women alone eat breakfast at 11 if we feel like it, lunch at 3 and dinner never if that’s the way the day is winding down. Single women do not worry about cooking unless we want to. And we don’t want to unless we like to. Single women love not having to get permission to spend our own money on a 10th pair of black boots or a painting or a wood stove. And eventually, we come to understand that there is no reason to curl up on “our” side of the bed while we sleep. We no longer have to take sides. We can sprawl across the expansive middle.”
